: Light Music

(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMIGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA .-
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THE two pieces by Rimsky-Korsakov are among the most piquant and frequontly-played examples of his light and sparkling music.
The first is from the Opera The Legend of Tsar Salian , the story of which resembles in some ways our fairy tale of Cinderella.
The Bumble Bee comes in to punish two wicked sisters, who, after the manner of the pair in Cinderella, are jealous of the third because she has become the Tsar's bride.
The tale of the Snow Maiden is one of the many folk stories that Russian composers have delighted to use as the basis of Operas and Orchestral Tone Poems.
The second piece is a depiction of the scene at the end of the first day of spring. In the domain of the Snow Maiden this is a day of festivity, on which all young folk who wish to wed come to receive the Tsar's blessing. The Dance of the Tumblers makes a merry end to the occasion.

THESE three songs are from the sixth set of Parry's delightful English Lyrics.
The first two have words by Alfred Perceval Graves, from the Greek.
The third, Love is a bable is full of brisk wit.
Its burden is that it passes the wit of man to make head or tail of love.
VICTOR HERBERT , born in 1859, is a grandson of the Irishman, Samuel Lover , who wrote Handy Andy. He was for some years a leading violoncello player. He has written nearly forty stage works, most of them light operas.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
